Coachella Hangover (part 1)

There were at least a handful of LAist contributors at this year's Coachella Festival, and as we slowly recover from our Coachella "hangover" we'll continue to upload photos and tell the stories from another epic weekend in the desert... (or at least the parts we can remember)

Part 1 of 5: THURSDAY - Peanut Butter Cream Pie and Riot Police

Our plan was to leave LA by 2pm (or 3 at the very latest) to try and avoid the peak of rush hour. We ended up leaving at 5:30. Ouch. Oh well, the extra time we sat in traffic gave us more time to get through the "Coachella 2008" playlist on the iPod. Besides, we had plenty of time to make the Filter Magazine party; which, now in it's sixth year has become a Coachella Eve tradition.
